A former member of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard paid a visit the White House this week, a man who the FBI believes had a hand in a 1996 terrorist attack that killed 19 U.S. servicemen.
The Washington Times reported Hadi Farhan al-Amiri was a part of the delegation at the White House Monday with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Al-Amiri is the transportation minister in al-Maliki's government.
CBN News Terrorism Analyst Erick Stakelbeck said he should not have had an audience with the president.
"He was a leading member of Iran's Revolutionary Guards Corps, which is a terrorist group. Yet he's in the White House for high level briefings," Stakelbeck said.
"This administration and the previous administration, I might add, have let the likes of the Muslim Brotherhood into the halls of power in the U.S. government," he said.
"Now we have a member of the Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, they have American blood on their hands. When will we wake up?" Stakelbeck asked.
The White House declined to confirm whether al-Amiri was a part of the Iraqi delegation. However, the Iraqi prime minister's office had him listed as a member of the group.
